yea, if you can get in there with a cut off wheel (if you have one) you could cut a slot, instead of chisel, might make a better slot

yeah, I have a dremel with a cut off wheel...I think I'll try the socket method, then the cut a slit method and then the extractor method....If it all fails, I'm taking it to Motorcycles Unlimited.

Yes. I'd definitely make the trip to a hardware store to get the extractor. The other suggestion of cutting a slot is interesting, but once done it might prevent you from using the extractor.

i think the cost of Motorcycles Unlimited doing it right the first time is the same as buying a tool and getting frustrated and f.ucking it up even more. i used that same extractor tool but the bolt is long and really hard to take out with that tool. especialy if you never took it out before and havent broken it loose.

Northern Tool = a cheaper hardware store, but not Harbor Freight cheap

So, Motorcycles Unlimited all the way??? I'll be on the northside Saturday and can probably drop it off if he has time to work on it. I should have known this would have been my best bet.

Make sure you replace the bolt with the OEM replacement. Those Caliper bolts are not just regular bolts.
